Why You Should Apply for Financial Aid, Even If You Think You Might Not Qualify

FAFSA

Federal and state financial aid puts college within reach for millions of students every year. The federal government alone provides more than $150 billion in grants, work-study funds, and loans each year.  But, to receive any of that money, you have to see if you qualify – which can only be determined if you complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Despite the availability of financial help, the US Department of Education reported that students in 2015 missed out on more than $2.7 billion in aid for college by not submitting their FAFSA.
